— Cloud Computing enables multiple users to, share common computing resources, and to access and store their personal and business information. These new paradigms have thrown new data security challenges. The majority of the cloud users are from the internet. The users those who have valid credentials on the cloud are called insiders. In the security perspective, all the remote users are to be treated as attackers. The security systems should ensure that the remote user is not an attacker. If a valid user’s credentials are stolen by an attacker, the attacker can enter into the cloud as a valid user. Distinguishing the valid user and the attacker (the user, who is doing identity crime), the protection of the real user’s sensitive data on the cloud from the attacker (insider data theft attacker) and securing the fog cloud with decoy information technology are the major challenges in the field of cloud computing. The Decoy Information Technology is used for validating whether data access is authorized; in the eventuality of any abnormal information access detection it confuses the attacker with bogus information.
